“Both ourselves and Bath City want to stay in the Cup for the right reasons and I’d love to get this Club into the First Round Proper.”
The Clarets have already traveled to Somerset once this season but return to Twerton Park in the Emirates FA Cup after beating the Romans 2-1 in the Vanarama National League in August.
Goals from Lee Barnard and Kudos Oyenuga completed a comeback from one-nil down to return to Essex with all three points.
However the Clarets now return to Twerton Park in the Emirates FA Cup after progressing past Weymouth Town last month with a 2-1 win.
Stringer’s side were forced to settle for a 2-1 win against a stubborn Weymouth Town side after reached the Third Qualifying Round with a convincing 7-0 win over Ramsgate in the earlier round.
Meanwhile Bath City, who recently appointed former player Jerry Gill as Manager, beat Knaphill 6-0 before defeating Hemel Hempstead 3-0 in the previous round.
The hosts improved their squad with the signing of Tom Smith on a one-month loan from Swindon Town with the midfielder eligible for tomorrow’s game. However there may be tired legs for the Romans who played a Somerset County Cup fixture during the week.
Chelmsford City boosted their squad during the today with the signings of Chris Assombalonga and Aristide Bassele, however the former is cup-tied and ineligible for the tie against the Romans.
